Students and staff at Lincoln UTC are celebrating their A Level results today (17th August), with 97% of candidates securing a place at University.

71% of students achieved their first choice, with 26% receiving grades high enough to accept their insurance offer at first class universities, including St Andrews, Birmingham, Manchester and York.

The specialist science, technology, engineering and mathematics, offers A Level and Level 3 STEM courses, including Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Electronics, Product Design, Cambridge Technical Engineering and BTEC Business Studies.

When looking at all of the examinations taken, including vocational qualifications in Engineering, Business and Applied Science, 69% of students achieved A* to C grade, with 81% of students achieving three or more A*to E grades.

As well as progression to University, Lincoln UTC students have also been successfully accepted onto top apprenticeships including Siemens, Moy Park, Fairfields Control Systems and Race Performance Motorsport Team.

Building on last year’s success, 100% of Lincoln UTC students are on track to enter education, employment and training.

Paul Birt, Chair of Lincoln UTC’s Board of Governors says: “My colleagues and I are delighted with the Key Stage Five results: They are a testimony to the commitment of our teachers and the hard work and talents of our students. The results are an endorsement of the vision we have for a STEM UTC, demonstrating the success of the concept in a practical fashion. It is very pleasing to see another cohort of Lincoln UTC students benefitting from our unique education, which is feeding Lincolnshire’s growing appetite for able and skilled engineers, mathematicians and scientists.”

Mr Birt’s comments are echoed by Interim Principal, Paul Batterbury: “We are very proud of Lincoln UTC and the success of its students. With so many successfully moving on to higher education or into significant further training, such as apprenticeships, we remain confident about Lincoln UTC continuing to deliver the vision its founding principal, Dr Rona Mackenzie, initiated three years ago.”

Opened in 2014, Lincoln UTC is a specialist STEM college educating 14 to 18 year olds. Up to 160 students are admitted into Year 10 and Year 12 each academic year. There are no entry requirements for entry into Year 10 but students must have a strong interest in Engineering and/or Science and a desire to combine practical, technical and academic modes of study. Entry requirements for Year 12 courses can be found at www.lincolnutc.co.uk
